Power laddoo is a delicious recipe which my mother came up with for fussy eaters!
Ojas is a really fussy eater, hardly eats and when he eats it feels that he is the one who is always on a diet. This power laddoo is a recipe which my mom came up with.
Ojas doesn’t touch ghee and butter. Anything in which I put these two ingredients are refused point blank. Everyone has been telling me, he has become thin. But I feel as long as he is healthy, I don’t care. But on his last visit, the doctor also mentioned that he is dropping percentiles and not putting on weight (he has actually not put on a single gram in the past two months).
So I started a search for a snack which is what he loves to have rather than full meals. When my mom made the besan ladoos he loved them. Mom and I sat and came up with these power laddoos. He eats one every morning and sometimes one in the evening too. I am glad he is enjoying this and thought will share the recipe with you all too.
These laddoos are super delicious and very easy to make. Full of lentils and so healthy! I loved this recipe and end up making the laddoos so often. Ojas really enjoys eating it and I think it provides him some amount of much needed fats plus the other nutrition too.
Its like these power packed nutrition paranthas which I make often for everyone. It is full of health and goodness! Perfect breakfast option!
As parents, we often get so worked up about how to get our children fit and healthy. Honestly, I am not too bothered about his weight. But I do want my child to be healthy and fit. And the best way we can do that is to give them homemade healthy food! So try out these power laddoos and trust me, you will make them often at home!
